    TBH, I can't tell what your curl pattern is because your hair looks extremely dry/damaged. If I were you, I would deep condition, moisturize with a leave in, protective style, and slowly trim off the damage.

    Do you color your hair?

    Well, also my hair doesn't ever look that dry, i just didn't do anything to it today and yeah. I gor highlights back in summer 2010 but they faded. Then i went on to use SunIn in summer of 2011 and my hair naturally has a reddish tint to it...

    It looks 3b/a in its current state.

    But, I agree with the other ladies. It looks a bit dry, and the straight ends are pretty indicative of dryness and/or damage.

    I color my hair, and my ends will do that if I'm not keeping up with moisture.

    What have you tried so far?

    Target has quite a variety of hair products, including natural lines, drugstore brands, and products designed specifically for curly hair.

    It really depends on how much you're willing to spend, and at the end of the day, what formulations and combos work for you.

    I personally use cheapie Suave Naturals conditioners (Black Raspberry and White Tea is my fave) for cowashing/detangling, I shampoo once a week with Alba Honeydew (?) shampoo. Giovanni Direct or Curls Creme Brulee as a leave in/styler. Sometimes I layer Jason Kiwi Apricot Mousse on top, if I need more hold.

    I buy all my hair products at HEB and Target.

    ETA: I get moisture into my hair by wetting it daily. Anything I put on my hair is to simply retain/promote moisture.

    When you say, you wet it daily, like in the shower? I wet my hair every night in the shower(i never take morning showers) so by the next day it's obviously drier, with a little moisture on some parts, so in the morning should i be using the products or no?

    I apply products to my hair while wet (leave in) and then anything else after it's damp but not dry.

    Well, I wet it every morning in either the shower or the sink if there's no time to shower :) or with a spray bottle filled with water if my hair looks ok, but only has a few wonky bits.

    My hair dries out easily and gets misshapened in my sleep, so I wet it everyday to moisturize and restyle it.
